o.o 2hrs long? I dont have that kind of patience man...
It is a long vid, and it seems the Computer History Museum spent about 30 minutes of it plugging themselves/begging for donations (I'm not dissing the CHM, they're doing important work), but I'd keep a link to it, anyway. It does have a lot of good insight into game design, and how escalating computer graphics capabilities impacted three important, and very different game designers.
I thought youtube had a 10 min limit on videos because they sold out.... those bastards!
@Jwallwalrus You're alive!
@Jwallwalrus They must make exceptions, maybe some kind of premium pay service, because the CHMs vids are often an hour long or more.
@WILDMAMMOTH yes i am, sadly my roommates have been playing more of my modern warfare 2 than I have!
@Jwallwalrus You've just got to take it back from them then.
